Legal Aid refers to the provision of free legal assistance to the poor and needy who cannot afford to hire a lawyer to represent them in a lawsuit or legal procedure before a court, tribunal, or authority. Legal aid is critical to ensuring that everyone has equal access to justice. The perspective and role of the judiciary in relation to the right to legal aid have been examined in this study. The recognition of the right to free legal assistance as a fundamental right is the result of judicial interpretation of the most prized right under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. The essay finishes with a discussion of India's constitutional entitlement to free legal aid and the guidelines set forth by the Legal Services Authority Act of 1987.
